The Anderson Tapes

99 mins
6.6 / 10 (492)


A thief just released from ten years in jail, takes up with his old girlfriend in her posh apartment. He makes plans to rob the entire building. What he doesn’t know is that his every move is recorded on audio and video tape, although he is not the subject of any surveillance.

MUBI's take

An ace heist film by the consummate professional Sidney Lumet (Dog Day Afternoon), who gives great attention to the New York setting and to every player, big (Sean Connery) and small. Lumet boldly adapts the novel’s collage-like narrative with a gripping tale told presciently through surveillance.
